Insecure Writers-Time Slippage
The slippage of time has been bothering me lately. Not like the time slippage you experience when shopping too long in Walmart for a specific toy and look up to find more than an hour has passed and the only thing you have in your cart is scotch tape but more like when you realize it's actually December and where the hell did the year go?
Writing takes time and good writing takes even longer. It's not something I have a huge supply of so I tend to guard it, to hoard it and once in a while freak out over the passing of it.
I'm not the most patient person which is ironic considering the publishing industry is notorious for it's lengthy process. But I don't think I ever had a choice in the matter. Nor will it stop me from pursuing what's been a dream since I first learned to read. A long, long time ago...
Someone should have invented a way to bottle time by now.
